We use “FTM” as shorthand for a spectrum that includes not just transsexuals, but anyone
who was assigned “female” at birth and who identifies as male, masculine, or a man some or all of the time. Some non-transsexuals in the FTM spectrum (androgynous people, butches, drag kings, bi-gender and multi-gender people, etc.) may also want hormone therapy, and

may not identify or live as men. For this reason we use the term FTM instead of “trans men”.

I like This, These, Theez

  • dsab = designated sex at birth
  • a man can be femme if he damn well wants, regardless of his dsab
  • a woman can be butch if she damn well wants, regardless of her dsab
  • nonbinary folks can be as butch or femme as they damn well want, regardless of their dsab
Any person can:
  • be butch
  • be femme
  • be androgynous
  • genderfuck
  • participate in drag
  • present in ways that are deemed “acceptable” for their gender by cissexist fucks
  • present in ways that are deemed “unacceptable” for their gender by cissexist fucks
  • define the words that are appropriate for their own body (some clits are six inches long, some cocks are just a couple centimeters long if that - deal with it)
  • change any part of their own body however the fuck they want as often as they want (minus culturally appropriative shit or outright oppressive shit - appropriative body mods and racist tattoos aren’t okay no matter who you are)
  • have whatever fucking gender(s) they want (or no gender at all)
  • define their gender and presentation in whatever way they want
  • consensually fuck people with whatever gender(s) they want as long (or not fuck anyone at all)
  • define their sexuality (or lack thereof) however the fuck they want, even if there are occasionally or frequently exceptions to their identified preference
  • have an identity that is as fluid or static as they like
  • disclose or withhold their gender or sexual identity and history as they see fit
  • disclose or withhold information about their body and its history as they see fit as long (as long as withholding that information isn’t a direct physical harm to others)
  • decide for themselves whether or not their gender and sexuality is inherent or “born that way”
  • do any or all of these things at any time, for any reason, regardless of dsab
Why is this so fucking hard? I’m done with binarist, homophobic Trans 101 bullshit that completely misses the mark and just reinforces cissexism.
Fuck your identity policing, fuck your binaries, fuck your bullshit anatomy diagrams trying to tell me the cis-correct words for my own fucking body.
I define my own reality. I define my own body. I define my own identity. Fuck any motherfucker who tries getting in my way of that ever again.

Avalon Blonde Gona

"My definition of a devil is a god who has not been recognized."
        ~mythologist Joseph Campbell.

"It is a power in you to which you have not given expression, and you push it back. And then, like all repressed energy, it builds up and becomes dangerous to the position you're trying to hold."

Do you agree, Pisces? I hope so, because you will soon be entering the Get Better Acquainted with Your Devil Phase of your astrological cycle, to be immediately followed by the Transform Your Devil into a God Phase.

To get the party started, ask yourself this question:     What is the power in you to which you have not given expression?

All the Words Protrude from Flat Earth

This is important Because Me:

For a lot of people who identify as genderqueer, their gender identity – and the way they express it – continues to evolve for a number of years. This includes clothes, pronouns, name, physical transition, medical transition, and other stuff. It’s not necessarily that genderqueer people are confused, it’s just that discovering who you know yourself to be can be a long process, which often involves unlearning years of what we thought we were supposed to be.
